Active Beyond the Bell

Help prepare your child to be active and healthy for life! 

Your kids will have a blast in this after school program focused on physical activity, movement, health, and fun. 

Active Beyond the Bell runs for two hours after dismissal in the gymnasium of your school, or if your child goes to Alex Hope Elementary or James Kennedy Elementary, they will have a supervised walk to Walnut Grove Community Centre. 

Active Beyond the Bell starts Wednesday, September 7, 2022. The fall session runs September to December.  The winter/spring session runs January to June. 

During Kindergarten gradual entry, Active Beyond the Bell starts at its regular time. We cannot accommodate early pick ups during gradual entry.

Active Beyond the Bell does not run on non-instructional school days or early dismissal days.  Pro-D day and early dismissal camps are available. View and register for camps.

If your child requires 1:1 support at school, the same level of support is required to participate in Active Beyond the Bell. All support workers require a Police Information Check to be completed a minimum of two weeks prior to the first day of your child attending Active Beyond the Bell. Please email ABTB@tol.ca for more information.

Each day we focus on fundamental movement skills, activity, and nutrition. Activities are included that introduce or practice these skills in a fun, non-competitive environment. Daily happenings vary to allow for input from the kids, free time, and snacks.
Physical Literacy is the ability to move confidently and competently in a variety of ways on a variety of surfaces. Studies show that children today are not gaining the basic skills to move confidently and competently. Without these skills, children are less likely to participate in sports as a child, and even less likely to participate as an adult. We introduce and practice these skills in a fun environment that focuses on personal development.  As confidence increases so does the probability that kids will learn to be active for live.

All staff go through an interview, reference check, and criminal record check before they are hired. Additionally, all staff must:

  • Have a valid First Aid Certificate. 
  • Complete a Township-specific orientation process that includes safety, expectations, and customer service.
